It's almost Valentine's Day—and you could give your hubby some cologne or a few get-out-of-the-dog-house coupons. Or you could do that thing that you've both been thinking about lately—well, at least when you're not waking up every three hours or changing the fourteenth diaper of the day. Sex.

But it's been a while and a lot has changed since then—there's the whole recovery from delivery, leaky breasts, sleep deprivation, crazy hormones, and—oh, right—you have a baby. It's normal to be a little worried. But don't worry, you can do this (and you should!). If you need a little pep talk (and okay, to laugh about it), here's a preview of what it's like to have sex for the first time post-baby... in GIFs.

So, you just became a mom.

You thought it'd be a lot like this:

But it's more like this:

You're getting the swing of it, though.

And your hubs has never looked hotter than when he's holding the baby.

But when you think about, err, sex, you get a little nervous.

It's been a while. Do you still know what to do?

Surely, you can do this. You did make a baby.

But what's it like...down there?

He's still going to like it, right? And I'm still going to like it, right? Right?!

Okay, breathe. You change 15 diapers a day, nearly as many feedings, walk the dog and DVR Downton Abbey. You can do this.

These boobs have never been better (or, um, bigger).

This body made a baby. #winning

And all that rocking is bound to lead to killer arms.

So bring it on.

I'm totally not going to cry in the middle. (Go away hormones, you're killin' the mood.)

Let's go, honey.

Yes. I've definitely still got it.

Is that the baby crying?
